Bodies point to Alaska's past

In the far north, "we've had a lot of changing in currents over the past decade or so and with the changing currents and increased storm activity in the fall especially, it's undercutting the gravels and the point is literally washing out into the ocean." As the point washes out near Barrow, what used to be an accreting spit - one building up - has become an eroding spit as the coastal ebbs and flows have changed their seasonal patterns, perhaps at the behest of global climate change.
